The Senate on Tuesday passed a Vote of Confidence on Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki's presidency, putting to bed insinuations in some quarters that it is divided.

The motion, which was moved by Senator Samuel Anyanwu (Imo east), had a wide range of support base and acceptance of majority of the Senate, as 81 Senators supported the motion.

The passage of the Vote of Confidence on Saraki's leadership as President of the Senate has effectively laid to rest insinuations of rancour among the Senators, who are said to be displeased with the Senate President.

It would be recalled that Saraki emerged President of the 8th Senate entirely on the goodwill of majority of the Senators who voted for him as their preferred choice against the wish of some party leader.

However, with the latest development, those rumours and insinuations of a divided Senate can be said to be over, as an overwhelming majority voted to pass the motion of a Vote of Confidence on his leadership.

Senate President, Dr Saraki in a welcome speech charged Senators to jettison any act of politicking that is capable of distracting them from the core business of governance and delivering change to their constituents.

Saraki was quoted as saying "Nigerians did not give us our mandate to come and pursue leadership, their mandate was for us to pursue governance and bring solutions to their burning issues." also went ahead to say leadership is secondary to our primary responsibility of good governance.
